With the 2010 FIFA World Cup less than two months away, Cyber Criminals (as
expected) are banking on this prestigious international football event to trick
users. TrendLabsSM spotted the latest threat involving this, and it came in the
form of an email message currently being spammed in the world.

Trend Micro Researchers were alerted to the discovery of a spam mail carrying a
.PDF file attachment which was found to contain details about the lottery which
the mail claims that the recipient has allegedly won. It also instructed the
recipient to give out personal information and send them to the contact person
or email sender before the prize could be claimed. Some samples retrieved were
noticeably free from attachments, and they were purportedly sent by a certain
FIFA Vice President.
Earlier researchers were alerted to the discovery of a spam mail that asked
people to shop online for IPL related products, which in return wanted to reveal
very significant personal information while shopping and also guided to fake
shopping websites which on clicking the link allowed the hacker to get into the
systems.
